You merely have to browse our multi-award-winning cutlery ranges to see that we love to shake things up. But we also never compromise on quality and this is where we know we stand out from the crowd of gold, black, copper and even petrol cutlery you can find in most home-depots. The thing with fashion is that often, the aesthetics of something can stand in the way and although playing around with finish, as with any trend, can lead to some exceptional design work, it can also lead to a dining experience that is far from what it should be.
‘Why is this?’ You might wonder. It all comes down to the materials used to make the cutlery itself, not just the finish. It may be covered up, but the brass so often used to make these vibrant knives and forks is still very much there. Dr. Zoe Laughlin and Professor Mark Miodownik, both co-directors of the Institute of Making at University College London, discovered at their spoon-tasting experiment in 2012 that the material you choose to eat with can dramatically affect the flavour of your food.
